Golden Slumbers

Thomas Dekker wrote Golden Slumbers in 1603 which is later adapted by Paul McCartney in 1969.

This was another one of those tunes that I had never heard until most recently and was instantly placed in jaw-dropped mode.  It's been covered by dozens of artists and some of the most interesting to my ear is by Ernie Halter, Plum Nellie, and Mumford and Sons.



 

I'll be working on figuring out how to play and sing this tune with the grace it deserves.  In the meantime, here is the pdf of the chords and lyrics I put together.  Click here for the Google Doc version which will allow you to download and edit as you see fit.
